For years I bucked against the idea that I am a small church pastor.
So I consumed every church growth book and devoured all the “10 Reasons Your Church Isn’t Getting Bigger” lists like they were a prescription for a disease. And if the prescription was to grow your church, the disease must be that the church was small. Or so I thought.
But the antidotes didn’t cure anything, because small churches are not a sickness to overcome, a problem to fix or a theological error to correct.
